Flight of Fancy

This piece, which I’ve titled “Flight of Fancy,” comes from some figment of my imagination. I was in the mood to write something fun, using some colorful, lesser used words. I also used a touch of poetic license with the word ‘romancey,’ for the sake of rhyming consistency. Hey, a poet’s gotta do what a poet’s gotta do, you know?! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜†
Flight of Fancy
by Carolyn Glackin
A wild sojourner’s
Torrid affair
Led her to
A hapless truth
Her paramour,
Though debonair
Was shameless, feckless,
And uncouth
Her trust betrayed
Her travels delayed
A victim of
His tactless guile
She thought it best
To seek some rest
And cease her journey
For a while
A flight of fancy
Quite romancey
Led her to
A handsome gent
Said he: “Come with me,
There’s a world to see”
So she packed her bags
And off they went.
